Flushing, NY (Sports Network) – A pair of errors and an RBI grounder by Eric
Young Jr. allowed the New York Mets to close the season with a 3-2 victory
over the Milwaukee Brewers at Citi Field.

The Mets trailed heading into the home eighth, but Juan Lagares reached on an
error to start the inning and raced home all the way from first when Jonathan
Lucroy threw away Juan Centano’s bunt. After a bunt single put runners on the
corners and Josh Satin flied to shallow right, Young’s slow grounder chased
home the go-ahead run.

Frank Francisco set the Brewers down in order in the ninth for his first save,
as the Mets avoided a four-game sweep. Young also scored the first run for New
York, which finished 74-88 for the second straight year and put the wraps on a
fifth straight losing season.

The Brewers had a four-game winning streak snapped and also wound up 74-88,
finishing fourth in the NL Central.
